Marla + Liam

REAL WEDDINGS OF OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA

A Meeting of Chance

If it hadn’t been for the fact that both Marla and Liam’s plans one evening didn’t go awry, they would have never met one another in a small restaurant bar in Crystal City. After striking up easy-flowing conversation for some time, it was clear they didn’t want to part ways for good. Fast forward to a scene of the quaint buildings and local history of Alexandria, a place that the couple defined as a “perfect cross-section of ambiance and excitement.” It was a wedding day worth waiting for – complete with a string-lit, enclosed vine-covered courtyard, rustic southern charm and chic décor, mariachis, and an impressionable staff that made it all come alive.

“There is no single aspect that makes the Lorien a great venue; it’s the combination of them all that makes it stand out.”

The common areas were decorated with beautiful plum colored linens and accented with mason jars full of purple and sage colored flowers.
